NHL Start / Sit – 1/19

Here are your start / sit fantasy recommendations for the January 19th NHL games.

Please note that you should always start your star players.  This list is here to help you if you have two similar players and are debating on which one to start.

Different factors go into picking start / sit candidates including strength of opponent, scoring categories, history vs opponent and sometimes, gut feelings.  Take that into consideration before making your final decision.

Players are listed in no particular order.

Keep in mind that this is day one of a shortened season. Your gut feeling will be most important today, and in the first few days of the season. Until definite roles are ironed out for some players, it’s hard to tell just who might have the biggest impact. If you have any questions about your fantasy lineup, don’t hesitate to ask.

Good Luck!
